Music to my ears…yes, and thank you Gautam Ghosh and Rotana Ty!
Besides the Fbombs, 500 Startups founder Dave McClure’s trademark, investors discussed finance, funding, froth and fundamentals in the startup world.
Here’s how the event at SanFrancisco‘s Intercontinental Hotel in June 2015 went….
Among the field of investors and founders discussing finance, funding, froth and fundamentals in theworld: Marlon Nichols of Intel Capital, Shauntel Poulson of Reach Capital, Heidi Roizen of DFJ, Michael Kim of Cendana Capital, Hunter Walk of Homebrew, Charles Hudson of SoftTechVC, Shadi Mehraein of Rivet Ventures, Jeff Clavier of SoftTechVC, Hamet Watt of Upfront Ventures, Diishan Imira of Mayvenn, and Ellen Pao of Reddit.
This was a fun day, meeting female founders and hearing what you’re up to, like
and what you’re up against, for instance
Some notable quotes:
“Give people tools to reach their own goals.”
“I want to bridge the gap between science and art.”
“Charge. With a new venture, there’s no precedence for getting it free. Make money as soon as you can. Everything costs.”
“Roadmaps are a symptom of distrust.”
“Survey your existing customers to get a description of your product in human terms other customers will recognize. Outsource the writing of case studies in an authentic voice.”
“By 2020 50% of the population will identify as freelancers.”
“Get champions for your community, beach heads that bring in others.”
Thanks for coming out, and here’s to your next steps!
